entrusts the development of its new software for Ship Classification to OPEN CASCADE
Develop a software tool:
- providing the means for rapid development of meshed structural models of certain classes of ships;
- performing a finite element analysis of ship structures and providing visual feedback of their strength and deformations, including the fatigue check of structural details;
Development of the Leonardo Hull 3D - Three Hold (LH3D-3H) application.
LH3D-3H refers to analysis using a "three hold" approach, based on calculations carried out on three ship holds.
Calculations follow RINA Rules for the Classification of Ships and assess the ship's structural compliance to these Rules.
- Speed up the approval process of tankers, bulk carriers and other types of cargo ships.
- RINA’s customers, i.e. shipyards now possess an easy-to-use tool for modeling and validating their ships during the production process.
- Rapid numerical simulation that meets quality requirements and represents a highly efficient replacement of older software.
- Facilities for monitoring the structural performance over the entire life cycle of a vessel and for timely maintenance support.
- Tools for reporting and communication between the shipyard and RINA.
- Reduction of the risk of delays during the drawing approval and construction phases due to early identification of critical areas.

Open CASCADE Technology saves time in the design validation process not only by allowing the integration of various tailored applications, but also by providing a direct link to shipyard data created with standard commercial CAD and analysis tools.
